Heat Transfer

Conduction, convection, radiation

Radiation

Radiation is a transfer from one place to another. Hotter objects radiate more heat than cooler objects. This is the same as darker and lighter objects, darker objects radiate more heat than lighter colored objects. All types of objects radiate some type of heat.


Uses in every day life:

- using the oven

- using the microwave

Conduction

Heat can be transferred by conduction. When an object is heated the particles in the object begin to vibrate. These vibrations are passed on through the object transferring the heat from one end to the other.
